ASDS was founded in 1989 by Steve and Jean McCandlish. We are based in Denver, Colorado. We are fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful areas in the world. That being said, we have travelled all over the world working with clients on Act! Today, we connect remotely to anyone anywhere in the world and it is so fulfilling to be able to help so many people.
We have been involved with Act! almost from the very beginning. Steve actually received an award from Act! called the Longevity Award – the guy who has been around the longest. We know Act! It has been our passion and our business. We have clients that we have worked with for decades. It is not a transaction to us, it is getting involved to help people with their passions – their businesses.
Steve taught the week long Act! Certified Consultants class for over a decade. Consequently, he has personally trained over 80% of the Act! consultants in the world. He taught classes not only in the US, but in the UK and Australia. As part of this engagement he wrote the Act! Certified Consultants manuals for many, many versions of Act!. These manuals were close to 500 pages each. It is not exaggerating to say he has poured over Act! in minute detail. It is no wonder he can so easily connect to your machine and immediately show you how to do something! He has even been called to testify in court as an expert witness on Act!
